Show Summary

FOX Broadcasting teamed with Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, Rene Echevarria and Aaron Kaplan to bring a new series, Terra Nova. In the year 2149, the planet Earth is a disaster, and most of the plant and animal life has become extinct. Scientists can't reverse the damage, but have found a way to travel back to prehistoric times to save the human race.

Among the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers in Terra Nova is the Shannon family. Jim Shannon, played by Jason O'Mara, is a loving father with secrets in his past. His wife, Elisabeth, is a trauma surgeon who has been recruited to join Terra Nova's medical team. Their three children join them on this journey: Josh is 17 and is not happy about leaving the life he knows. Maddy is 15 and is looking forward to a new life and a chance to make changes. Zoe is 5, and there is a secret involving her that could create problems for the Shannon family.

Commander Nathaniel Taylor warns the new arrivals of the dangers that surround them in Terra Nova. There are not only dinosaurs, but other settlers who have left the colony to start their own. The outcast colony is led by Mira, who left because she disagreed with Taylor as a leader. The Shannons soon discover not all the danger exists outside the walls of Terra Nova. Some of the members of their group disagree on how to save mankind and some may even be trying to destroy the new world before it can get started.

While FOX has announced the cancellation, Terra Nova is being shopped to other networks.

  • Want More Terra Nova

    I absolutely loved the show and couldn't' get enough! Would love to see it come back!!! Fresh cast, good writing and great effects.
  • It had more depth than most sci fi shows

    Best show ever.

    It was different than the usual "heroes blasting everything in sight" story.

    This series had and still has a lot of potential but thanks to FOX misshandling and the "We hate Terra Nova for no good reason" people out there.

    Bring back Terra Nova EVEN if you have to pay the actors more and fire some board members of FOX better yet fire the entire board.

    I've lost count on how many times I've seen the series and it is still my all time favourite NO other show was ever this good.moreless
